Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] EF plans to raise awareness of Java 8 support

For things coming in the Luna timeframe, I think the best answer will be to point people at the release train development stream builds and repository. By May 9th there will be a stable build of the entire release train that includes the Java 8 tooling support for all projects (assuming they are doing it for Luna). I think most consumers will happily wait for that if they have demands beyond the basic JDT support, rather than cobbling together bits and pieces from unstable builds of various projects.

We would certainly be willing to keep a page (perhaps a wiki page) that
contains a list of other Java 8 enabled features. But we do not want to
bury the lede that JDT is supporting Java 8. That is what the vast
majority of developers will care about. Perhaps closely followed by WTP

I am _not_ solid technically on this stuff, so I am probably going to
suggest something embarrassingly dumb. But perhaps we need a shared
repository where projects who wish to can publish their Kepler SR2
features which support Java 8?
